Are you an emotional eater? Are you a comfort eater?
Do you find you overeat? Do you sabotage your diets?
Have you tried other weight loss programmes before but been unsuccessful?
If so, let me show you how hypnosis can help you lose weight.
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to help you lose weight by dealing with the psychological reasons responsible for your unhealthy diet. Hypnotherapy is proven to help those who are committed to losing weight. Healthy weight management is grounded in a positive mindset and hypnosis is one of the most effective tools there is to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Recent research has shown that hypnotherapy can help you lose twice as much weight as normal diets.
And the best news is that hypnotherapy is 100% natural. There are no pills or diet supplements. You can still eat some of the food you like. The gastric band hypnosis technique can be effective at suggesting to the unconscious mind that you have had a gastric band fitted. This helps you to reduce the number of calories consumed and lose weight. Hypnotherapy can also help you control your cravings and emotional eating by dealing with the emotional reasons.
Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective at combating emotional eating.
Hypnotherapy deals with the cause of your emotional eating rather than the symptoms. Evolution has pre-programmed you to crave high fat and sugary foods when you are stressed. You are designed to release higher levels of the hormone cortisol when you are stressed and anxious. Cortisol has lots of benefits but one of the negatives is it increases your desire for salty, fatty and sugary foods. Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective in tackling stress and anxiety which then reduces your cortisol levels, which in turn reduces your desire for high sugar and salty foods. If your weight-loss diets have been unsuccessful in the past, there is a good chance you didn’t deal with the emotional cause of your unhealthy diet.
Hypnotherapy can be extremely effective at dealing with comfort eating.
Eating is one of life’s natural pleasures. When you eat, your body releases the ‘feel-good’ chemical serotonin. It is no surprise that you feel good when you eat. However, this can lead to a vicious cycle of eating to feel good, when you feel low.
You are more likely to gain weight if you eat to feel good when you feel sad. Eating to reduce sadness leads to regret and guilt that you have not stuck to your diet. This, in turn, increases those feelings of sadness and unhappiness.
Eating in this way doesn’t help you deal with the cause of your sadness. Emotional eating just compounds your feelings of sadness. It negatively affects your feelings about your body image, causing you to feel sad again. That is when your self defeating ‘inner voice’ kicks in and tells you there isn’t any point sticking to your diet. You end up trapped in a vicious cycle.
Hypnotherapy can help with your body image and self-esteem.
It is stating the obvious that your self-image suffers when you gain weight. Research has shown that hypnotherapy can improve your body image, self-esteem and self-worth. It can motivate you to succeed and lose weight. With improved self-esteem and self-worth, you don’t need to eat to feel good, so you are more likely to stick to your diet.
Hypnotherapy can help you take control of your appetite. It can help you feel calm and give you better energy levels. It can help you stop using food as a coping mechanism especially when you are feeling stressed, bored or anxious.
If you eat too little or too much your health and quality of life can be affected. This can cause you to have negative feelings towards food. Hypnotherapy can help you make healthier choices and control compulsive eating, bingeing and weight gain.
The problem with some slimming diets is they don’t deal with the psychological issues that cause you to overeat. Once you stop the slimming diet you tend to put the weight back on. Hypnotherapy is different. It can help you lose weight by fundamentally shifting your perception of food and diet.
Obesity and diabetes levels are rising and millions are spent on health education raising awareness on healthy eating. Many are addicted to junk food. Food is addictive. Research suggests that hypnotherapy can help the release of peptides that control feelings of hunger.
How can hypnosis help with weight loss?
The main part of hypnotherapy is to raise your confidence and motivation levels to help you to succeed. To be successful in losing weight, there are two parts to the therapeutic process:
#1. Develop the right attitude.
You need to be motivated, determined and driven to lose weight. Hypnotherapy will help you have a positive attitude and help you believe you can lose weight and live a healthy life. It will reframe your thinking and encourage you to take personal responsibility for your weight management. Part of the hypnotherapy is to focus on the self-defeating thought patterns that might have caused you to give up in the past.
#2. Develop healthy eating behaviours.
Once your attitude is in the right place and fired up, I will help you let go of the unhealthy eating habits and help you adopt healthy eating habits to lose weight. The goal is to help you take back control over food and increase your motivation to live a healthier life, including increasing exercise where possible. The therapy will include identifying your eating patterns and finding ways to change your eating behaviours. I will help you develop an eating plan that follows the 80-20 rule. You will eat healthily 80% of the time and have a bit of what you fancy for the remaining 20%.

Individual results can vary. There is no guarantee that hypnotherapy will be effective in every case. For hypnotherapy to be successful you need to be open to change and fully committed.
